The estranged father of Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle may be among the witnesses brought in by a UK newspaper fighting legal action launched by Markle for alleged breach of privacy and copyright infringement. The case, launched by Markle's legal team in October last year, centres around the publication in the 'Mail on Sunday' of extracts of a personal letter which she sent to her father in August 2018, three months after she married Prince Harry. Her lawyers allege misuse of private information, infringement of copyright and breach of the Data Protection Act 2018. Associated Newspapers Ltd has defended the publication of the excerpts and includes evidence from Thomas Markle – who could also be called in to testify if the case goes on to trial. Meghan's privacy rights do not extend to silencing her father the documents note.
